The ‘A’ Team
Here are a selection of our big fish between 55lb and 84lb. At least ten over 60lb and still growing.

We have around 500 fish the average size in around 20kg/44lb. We have two very big carp over 70lb and we have at least 20 fish between 25k/55lb and 30kg/60lb+.
2016 In Review
I am only going to single out what I consider to be some of the stand out catches of the year. With four 60+ braces alone this year it’s going to be difficult to get everyone else in.
Autumn Big Brace
Autumn big race with Alex at 70lb and a stunning 60lb fish.
Seven in 48 hours to 55lb6oz.
Great session for Julien, seven fish to 55lb in 48 hours. Including one of the big commons and a stunning young 40lb fish recently stocked and pictured above.
Opening week round-up
With fish showing all over the lake it didn’t take long for the fish to start slipping up. A lot of the fish have been in the shallower water over the previous few weeks so it did not surprise me that peg 7 opened the season with three fish banked and two lost on opening night.
End of year Review
I think you’ll all agree it’s been a great year to have fished Ribiere and 2016 is shaping up to be just as good. For me it will also be the year that I’ll move out on site. So hopefully I’ll be seeing many of you on the bank. I thought I ‘d start this newsletter with a review of the year and try to give you all a feel for the way it’s gone before quickly looking at improvements for the future
New Year at Ribiere
Happy New Year – And here’s to realising your carp fishing ambitions in 2016! We hope that we’ll be seeing plenty of new PBs for you here at Ribière whilst making new friends and enjoying your time fishing with us.
Awesome Autumn – Alex at 72lb
It’s been a hectic few months at Ribiere. As many of you will know we have a new partner in the business.
David Cooper has joined us with a view to taking full ownership with his wife Heidi and their young family. He will be working on UK bookings, sales, marketing and fisheries management.
